Smart Built Culture Event in Orlando



As Collaborative Construction launches Smart Built Cultures we invite you to participate!


Smart built cultures save time, money, lives and careers! Do you believe that an effective enterprise values time and money and the lives and careers of its employees? Does your company value time and money? Is your enterprise committed to safety? What does your enterprise do to demonstrate it values the careers of its employees? If you answered yes to any of these questions you need to sign up and attend!

As the global economy transitions from an industrial economy to a knowledge economy traditional business models fail and new business models emerge. What business model does your enterprise deploy? What is your company's strategy for competing in the knowledge economy? What digital disruptions rocked your industry in the past decade? In the past year? Last month? Last week!

Again, if you cannot answer these questions sign up!

If your enterprise needs help building a smart culture that enables it to compete in the emerging knowledge economy sign up. If your department needs to understand the implications of the knowledge economy schedule to attend today. If safety deserves more attention in your company come to Orlando. If your career is at risk attend!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Analyzing the Impact of Projects on People Profits and the Planet





Lachmi Khemlani, founder and editor of AECbytes, wrote an nice review of a new software program called Autocase which creates a detailed report on the so-called triple bottom line (TBL) of a project from a cost benefit analysis perspective. The article, Autocase: Cost-Benefit Analysis of Sustainable Design, summarizing the benefits of the new program.

TBL refers to the financial, social and economic impact of a project. I often refer to TBL as the 3 Ps, people, profits and planet. As Lachmi points out in the article more and more owners are demanding more detailed analysis of the TBL prior to greenlighting projects and this new software tool appears to enable such analysis.

The current version focuses on sustainability issues and is tied tightly to the USGBC's LEED certification process but one can imagine a modified version of the software that provides three separate reports that focus on people, profits and the planet. Arming decision makers with in depth analysis early compliments the integrated project delivery model well. A report that satisfies the owner, the lender and the environmental regulators / public code enforcement officials all at once makes a lot of sense. Here at Collaborative Construction we will keep a close eye on Autocase.
